5.0 su 5 stelle A highly readable, formerly untold tale that makes utterly clear the importance of our beginnings in the trajectory of our lives 11 maggio 2016
Di M. Wadman - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Pearson writes as if she is sitting in the room with you chatting, making what seems at first glance an unlikely subject compelling and accessible. I ended up feeling a great deal for all the cohort scientists and everything that they went through trying to keep their studies alive. What suffering and scrambling for such an important cause! I also learned loads about British social history of which I had very little idea-- and more about the sad demise of the US Children's Study and the brutal pulling out of the rug from under the latest would-be British cohort. Above all, Pearson's highly readable book brings home the mercilessness of the roulette wheel that determines where we are born and to whom and in what circumstances and all it portends for our lives, which hasn't seemed to change from 1946 to today. Read this book!

5.0 su 5 stelle whose impacts are not always easily understood by politicians and bureaucrats 4 dicembre 2016
Di Gonzalo Vargas - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This is a fascinating, readable book about a technical and seemingly dry topic—birth cohort studies—which involve monitoring the health, income and other attributes of all the boys and girls born in a town or country during a given period, say a week, throughout their entire lives. Thanks to birth cohort studies, researchers have unveiled long-lasting connections between our early years—from conception to school—and our achievements later in life. But cohort studies are costly, long-term projects whose feasibility depends both on the institutional capacities of governments that fund them and on the relentless determination of the scientists behind these projects. The book documents the incredible lengths to which scientists often had go to start and maintain such costly, long-term projects, whose impacts are not always easily understood by politicians and bureaucrats, especially in times of austerity. In doing so the book shows the often unnoticed passion and tenacity that scientific enquiry demands.

Ms. Pearson does a good job of describing the nuts and bolts of a number of different cohort studies, most of them English. The tenacity of the study leaders is an inspiration for other researchers. However, I was hoping for a book with more narrative on the people who were studied. The book hints at their lives and tells some anecdotes about a few participants, but very little of the book is devoted to them

Excellent book especially for one that is so factual. Helen Pearson makes the whole project come alive and not just some dull, boring statistics. Good reading for those who are interested in the history of science!!

4.0 su 5 stelle Gripping read - finished in 2 nights - sad Social Mobility Remains a Myth in GB 11 dicembre 2016
Di Swiss Quality - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Fascinating read - as entertaining as anything I have read & extremely informative about British Society over the last 70 years. Perhaps because born in 1958 , attending a grammar school, coming from the socially deprived North East of England I could relate to the content and some of the conclusions - the lack of social mobility for my contemporaries and the burning desire of my Father to get me to go into higher education. If you have kids I would add this to your priority reading list. If you don't have kids I would still add it to your reading list
